Congratulations to Ben Vallafsky.

We are excited to share Ben Vallafsky’s story! Ben participated in our Academic and Career Empowerment (ACE) program for two years and engaged in many hands-on career workshops in various fields to learn about different career options. Ben acquired many skillsets through our mentoring program that led him to a successful high school graduation.

Denium Potts – Amazing Story

Denium Potts was a junior in high school when he first participated in PCI’s Academic Career Empowerment (ACE) program. While attending our program, he participated in the business workshop with officers from the Appleton Police Department, who created a hands-on workshop to show students the work and methods of a Law Enforcement career.

This opened up a new insight for Denium, as he had never considered the police a valid career path. The workshop provided him with a fascinating insight, and he is looking towards building a career in Law Enforcement using the experiences he gained from PCI’s ACE program. Denius Denium is currently in St. Roberts College, studying business administration.

The workshop provided Denium insight into the various aspects of a career in the law enforcement field. Using this experience, Denium enrolled in the business administration program at St. Roberts College.

Soccer Without Boundaries

Soccer Without Boundaries comprises ~100 refugee players who work together to create a sense of belonging, foster positive relationships, and build an inclusive community. We believe these are essential elements to promote a healthy and supportive environment.
